Mabel Lucie Attwell is one of the most well-known and loved woman illustrators of the Golden Age. It’s easy to see why, her illustrations lacks details and some overly “sweet”. But her chubby, winsome figures, simple palette, catchy composition is pleasing to the eyes won over the hearts of many children a hundred years ago and still do today. Many of her books are still in print to this date.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a subterranean fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.

It was an instant success and became a classic, one of the most popular and famous children’s book of all time. Sir John Tenniel illustrated the original book and left his mark as the Alice’s illustrator. Many famous illustrators have taken their turn illustrating Alice’s since then, but none have surpassed Sir John Tenniel’s magical illustrations.
